You probably have spyware installed. Run the free versions of these two tools and remove anything they find:
Then try to install again.
Hey, thanks for your reply. Unfortunately I'm still having no luck. I ran both of them, did find some spyware/malware, ran again until clean, restarted, ran the removal tool once more, restarted, attempted installation and I'm still getting the same message immediately after the AntiVirus has downloaded.
Download Hijackthis and post its log with an explanation of why you need it analysed on one of the following forums for expert advice.

Don't do anything.. wait for a day and download this is due to an incorrect download file and you must be good soon;)
Well, as far as I can tell, a virus scan was what I needed. My next step was going to be trying that HijackThis program but first I downloaded AVG, scanned and found a couple corrupt files. Upon deleting those the installation went farther than before, stopping eventually for the same reason as before but this time it specified: AVG needed to be removed. After doing so, the installation went fine. I appreciate all the advice.
Glad you are OK now.
